I'M A Celebrity Jungle Queen Vicky Pattison has revealed the toughest part of jungle life - and it's not what you might expect.

The Geordie Shore star, 35, took the crown Down Under back in 2015, with Union J singer George Shelley as runner-up. Recently, Vicky opened up about her jungle experience in a candid interview with Sky News' Political Editor Beth Rigby.

Beth - who confessed she herself was an I'm A Celeb fan - asked Vicky: "Is the reality of it quite monotonous and boring a lot of the time? "You've got no phones, no books, no food, no booze," to which Vicky quipped of the latter: "That is the hardest bit. "So everyone thinks it's like the bugs and, don't get me wrong, the heat is horrible especially for a little Geordie like me." Yet the I'm A Celebrity crown came with its huge pitfalls, and later on in the chat, Vicky opened up on her father's 30-year battle with alcoholism - and how her show victory could have sent her on the same path.

After discussing the star's heartfelt Channel 4 documentary, Vicky Pattison: My Dad, Alcohol and Me, she confessed there was a "period in my life there was a very good chance I could have ended up being an alcoholic, yes." She continued: "It's the weirdest thing - when I came out of the jungle everyone assumed I had the world at my feet. "And I should have been the happiest I had ever been but I was really out of my depth.
